Impatiens Necrotic Spot Virus (INSV)
- Symptoms are extremely variable
- Stunted growth and wilting may occur
- Leaf distortion; ringspots or black spots on leaves and stems; blackish/purplish coloration along leaf veins
- Tip dieback and in some cases entire plant will collapse
- Lab test needed to identify INSV since it is difficult to diagnose on symptoms alone
